for us to strengthen our budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for everyone. but john, you decide we pay for things in indiana. when you were speaker for five or six years, indiana with $700 million in debt. we had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things. i would just like to know from my colleagues how we are going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> congressman, if you had spent the last 12 years in indiana, you would know better but it has to be balanced in indiana, according to our constitution. i have balanced and produced bipartisan balanced budget. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. five times, congressman, you voted in the results increase our deficit by $200 billion. >> bind key house and senate and governor races on c-span, c-span radio and >> great people and stories about american history. the first pilgrims in america came 50 years before the mayflower fail. they were french. they made one. they had the good sense to land in florid

counsel john rizzo, and former justice department inspector general lyn fine. posted by the center on national security, this is an hour 20 minutes. >> okay, marty has charged us with finding all the solutions, and luckily i'm only the moderator so i would have to charge the three of you with giving us some solutions. i think the way this panel is organized is to provide context for what you just heard. i hadn't quite realized it would work as a will that we have the right people to give the right context, both in terms of the law, in terms of the post-9/11 decade and where it's taken us, in terms of the self-regulating institutional function of government, to figure out its own problems, make its own recommendations and maybe suggest its own solutions. and in terms of what all this means from the point of view of working in the field, on the ground, inside a covert realm. so we're going to try to tie this all together today by looking at some of these issues. and i have to trust that we're going to get to some answers to our panel today is very distinguished. first, stephen vladec

the government, which has been a great operationally. i mean, john and i can talk about things and share with our colleagues in a way that we were not able to do, our counterparts were not able to do before september 11th and the patriots. the problem there, of course, is the more people who have access to this information, which is what we want, to give a real-life scenario, what you're talking about, a terrorism investigation in the united states, you're looking at it in the united states, you need to have integration sharing from the cia and their overseas collectors who are getting information about let's say the pakistan end of that network to the fbi headquarters who are getting that information and then sharing it with the fbi folks in the field, whoever that cell is and the local law enforcement folks who are actually out there in the streets. so all these people need to know the information it will be fully effective. the problem is, of course, that raises the possibility of that that affirmation will be compromised. and, you know, we saw that. he was able to get access to an amazing amo

missed the copy of this on the way in, we recommend it to your reading and i would say to john and steve thanks for inviting me to participate here in this event and i will get into that in a minute on why i think it's important. i would also like to add my voice to the memory trip who contributed as he things to so many things in life to this effort just before he passed away, and quite a remarkable man as john indicated with an amazing list of accomplishments and a relatively short life. so, trip, hopefully you are up their smiling on these efforts and somehow using your powers and spirits to motivate us to do more and do it better. i'd like to say a few things about the effort. the idea to have been to some of our most experienced leaders in both civilian and diplomatic and military sides come to get their views and experiences before they tend to disappear into the recesses of their memory so that we can collect the body of firsthand knowledge through the experience of many people who have done a lot of work in recent years in connecting the dots between security, something that i've

words in john small, but john i think you said if i remember correctly, that the budget was, quote on quote, too timid. did you say that? i did. let's be clear what the right and budget does is make devastating cuts and virtually every program in the medicare as we know it right now major cuts in pell grants, major cuts in nutrition programs and i have no doubt. john as i understand it wanted to go even further to see the deficit reduction to do it not on the backs of the elderly, the sec and the poor and that is by asking the wealthiest people and the largest corporations to start paying their fair share of taxes. i was talking about it gets us to solve that problem over a period of ten years. i thought ten years was too long basically. that was not an endorsement of every single item in the budget but the direction is going in, and whether or not i would support cutting if i supported that the budget i don't know. i have to look at the budget and see what cuts are necessary, but the most important point to remember is this. half of the budget is reform of the tax code to get the

these minorities feel not only that they would survive, but that they would thrive. >> john, if i can ask for questions requested, and anybody can try to answer them. how would a variety of possible future serial look at separatists and other extremist anti-statist quote groups attempted to and succeeded in dividing syria into multiple political entities, if not new countries? how, given these kinds of possible scenarios might one rank these yet to be achieved or yet to be attempted alternative, alternate maps of syria or of probability? number three, how, if at all, does israel stand to gain from the conflict in syria? and lastly, how, in light of persistent attacks on iraqi american and other security forces, in iraq, contract security forces on the american side, can one envision iraq regaining the degree of national sovereignty political independence and territorial integrity that it manifested prior to the american-led invasion and occupation? john, do you want to choreograph the response? >> why don't we just, we will start with moan and work our way down. >> i'll just take a stab a

of damage they can cause and any of those that have been in the national security arena and john is going to elaborate on this we know and feel the impact that this type of damage has. first they can damage our operation. i think that is pretty straightforward. there is the disclosure of the movements like there was in some of the wikileaks disclosures. that's something our enemies and adversaries can use against us. there was disclosure five years ago of a very responsibly run and a very effective program going after the terrorist finances called the swift program. once that got out that diminished our ability to attract the financing of terrorists and that is a serious damage to our operations and to our sources. much has been made over the last ten, 11 years to have human intelligence, and human intelligence is intelligence officials going out and developing sources. human beings that are going to get inside the organization we have and tell you what they are doing. we allow that to pass after the fall of the berlin wall and after 9/11 it's clear we didn't have an insight into what the
